Highway Winter Maintenance
The westbound lane of the Cowbridge
bypass is now open. It was closed last night and this morning due
to black ice.
Our Highways Team were out all night gritting and clearing
snow on all main routes throughout the Vale. All main roads
are clear, however motorists are advised to drive with care as ice
is still affecting some roads.

We have over 200 salt bins sited at
strategic locations around the Vale. This grit is for pavements and
roads only. It is not for commercial use or for use on
private property and action could be taken against anyone
taking grit for their own use. Find
the location of these bins here.
Big Phil's not a happy chappy
And why should he be? These freezing conditions and snow
have created a huge new batch of potholes.
We are aware of the problem and, as soon as this current
spate of snowy weather has cleared up, we'll be logging them
and filling them as quickly as possible. Please bear with us.
